    Others have the right to express there opinions same as you have. This topic was created to discuss the show and that's what people are doing.

    Just because others have different opinions to you doesn't mean they're drivel. If people have a negative opinion of him/his shows then they have every right to express them same as the positive opinions are.

    Who said anything about been compelled? I for one have tried watching his shows but do not watch anymore.

    Then those forums are run by nazi's and I find it hard to belive any respectable forum would ban a member for expressing opinions on a show that is completely on-topic for the forum the post is in.

    What's the point of having a discussion on a topic if you cant express your opinions? Kind of makes forums pointless.

    Respect the man for what he has achieved and the work he does for the youth of today. And be honest, if you had the chance to do what he does, and earn the kind of money he gets for doing it, wouldn't you do the same? I would.
    Tbh It's more the show(s) that are getting criticized really.

    So, in this thread specifically posted about a particular show, are you saying that you're expressing this volume of opinion about a show you haven't actually watched?

    However Adz, your posts go beyond the criticism of the show. Do you not read your own posts? And I would also like to express my disappointment in how you refer to other very good and well respected forums, quite possibly ones of which you may be a member of.

    Said it before and I'll say it again....Its the production companies that tell the 'star' what they want. Some stars won't do that and leave, or are engineered out of the programme to be replaced by ones that will.

    The public 'volunteering' for the shows are the ones I refer to as prostituting themselves - because I don't like this kind of reality TV I don't watch them end of.

    What we don't see is beyond the public face of the stars as Jus says Bear does some really good work with youth, Mr M is a passionate conservationist (which we are discovering now),DC is a passionate historian........

    And finally Adz......I suggest you are slightly more careful with the use of the Nazi word, some people on this and other forums may find it deeply offensive

    Made me feel a little uneasy when used about what is basically an inconsequential topic. I should have had the nous to express my feelings at the time.

    No Mike you're quite right. You didn't imply anything which is why I had to ask you the question in the first place.

    When you think about it the Nazis were a particularly evil bunch of people and its easy to see how someone could find it easy to be offended by the comment.

    Now can we all just take a breath and chill out ?
